OZU'S EQUINOX FLOWER
Saw Yasijuro Ozu's Equinox Flower for the second time, a story about parents and their conflicts with their children over the changing mores of how one chooses a mate. I don't know how Ozu does it. The drama is minimal; the acting understated; the pacing leisurely; everything is tightly controlled. Yet his movies are riveting and deeply moving.
